RATU Tevita Tokalauvere believes we all have a part to play in protecting women and children from all forms of violence and abuse.

The education officer of Save the Children Fiji in the North is among two other contestants vying for the Ratu Vualiku title in the Duavata Northern Crime Prevention carnival that is set to take place in Labasa tomorrow.

Originally from the village of Naduri in Macuata, Ratu Tevita aims to promote the protection of women and children from violence and abuse during the week-long carnival.

"As an education officer of a dynamic organisation, I have come to learn the value of women and children," he said.

"I have also worked with numerous NGOs and also attended training and workshops that promoted women and children's rights.

"Violence and abuse against women and children are something we hear almost every day and this inhumane behaviour should be stopped.

"The onus is on us to take the lead role and stop such actions."

Ratu Tevita said people should change their mind-set on how they viewed the modern era.

"If not, violence and abuse will continue to rise.

"It's also important for us to work with the police to maintain law and order in the country.
